Spinefarm is pleased to announce that Hunter Oliveri has signed to the label’s international roster. He has also shared the video for “Dumb.”

Hunter Oliveri doesn’t profess to having it all figured out.

At just 17, the artist is still making sense of himself — who he is, what he stands for, where his life is going. He doesn’t arrive as the next ready-made rock star action figure cast in plastic. There is an unquestionable realness about the way he makes sense of life through his music. But he exhibits a surety of mind beyond his years, to create music that connects and inspires, and that will stoke the growing fire of rock’s recent renaissance.

The clip instantly transports the viewer to a gloriously misspent youth, simply in search of the next feel good moment — be it the next blunt, the next swill of beer, or the next hang session with a friend or a crew. It also offers keen insight into Oliveri’s sound and songwriting, not to mention his wild coif of curls!

Watch it below:

“Dumb” boasts a baggy, distorted riff weaving around an earworm melody and a singalong chorus that finds Oliveri chewing over how “I made a home in the chip on my shoulder / I know I could change / but I’d rather be dumb.”

It’s a fitting look into the heart of a young and hungry artist, who is looking to hold onto and suck the marrow out of his youth and the right here, right now.

“My mom wants me to get a job, two jobs, everything’s expensive as fuck, I have friends making more on OnlyFans than college graduates/doctors, everything’s dumb,” Oliveri says. “So I tried to grab the feelings I have on the daily of: What is the point of doing what my parents want me to do when shit just feels dumb as fuck?”

He continues, “I bet a lot of kids could relate to having people tell you to go to college, find a steady career, have a family, and be a part of this fucked up system, when in reality, I just want to be a kid my entire life, chase girls, skate, smoke, hang with my friends, and make music. I hope the song connects with anyone who just wants to forget all their problems and live life without all the bullshit. Just rather be ‘Dumb.'”

CAVALERA kicked off the Morbid Devastation Tour in Albuquerque, NM on August 29th. Accompanying the brothers on stage will be Igor Amadeus Cavalera (HEALING MAGIC,
GO AHEAD AND DIE) fulfilling bass duties and Travis Stone (PIG DESTROYER, DESOLUS)
will be supplying lead guitars. Staying true to the raw, discordant energy of the early days, the tracks are delivered like punch after punch, authentically reminiscent of the chaotic live-shows of the eighties as Max wails through Morbid Visions and Iggor slams through “Troops Of Doom.” The quartet has captured the graveyard essence of these albums with a fresh wind, demonstrating from start to finish that Morbid Visions and Bestial Devastation will once again wake the dead from their crypt.
